"The Douglas State Trail has many of the same attributes as the Luce Line, a 60-plusmile trail stretching from the western suburbs of Minneapolis toward the central plains of south-central Minnesota. Like the Luce Line, the Douglas State Trail offers hikers a walking view of some of the richest farmland in the state. Although the trail stretches for 12.5 miles between Pine Island and Rochester, I suggest that you enjoy the 7.5-mile segment between Douglas and Pine Island. The south end of the Douglas State Trail extends to the heart of Rochester. Urban development and industrial/commercial complexes along the last few miles of the southern end turn this country lane into a broad, sidewalk-like corridor. It’s best to make a trailhead start/end point closer to the north side of Rochester than to follow it all the way into the city." Read more
